Testing script for task based user testing of the collections pages on Archive.org during December 2015.
Five users and two internal staff members were interviewed in December of 2016. Testers were asked to perform nine tasks on the search and collections pages in a 15-45 minute session (in-person and remote).
The goals of the session were to evaluate:
How the user utilizes the navigation bar, search or browsing on the homepage to find a specific collection?
Can the user successfully use the sorting and filtering features on the collections page?
Can the user successfully navigate to a collection’s ‘About Page’?
Can the user successfully download an item?
Can the user successfully locate a media-focused collection?
